Don Imus and Neil Cavuto Butt Heads Once Again on FBN

Fox Business Network host Don Imus has never been afraid to share his feelings about the network on-air. Last year Imus and FBN host Neil Cavuto got into an on-air tiff, and this morning it happened again.

“You are incorrigible,” Cavuto said, prompting Imus to respond by referring to him as a “Fox News executive” rather than host, and referring to FBN executive VP Kevin Magee as “fat Kevin.” There is no Imus in team,” Cavuto quipped, before mentioning that Howard Stern called Imus “a divider, not a uniter.”

White Sox Pitching Coach Hangs Up On The Mully & Hanley Show

The Chicago White Sox’s disappointing season is starting to take its toll on the coaching staff.

During his weekly spot on The Mully & Hanley Show (WSCR 670AM), Chicago White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper abruptly ended the interview after he was asked about prospect Dayan Viciedo, according to the Chicago Tribune:

“I have no clue about that. I’m a coach,” Cooper fumed during his session on “The Mully & Hanley Show” on WSCR-AM 670. “Do I feel like something (needs to be done)? Yeah, we have to score some runs. That’s what’s got to be done. And if we do, we have a chance to win. And if we don’t, we won’t.

“Nice try, asking me to bring up (bleeping) Viciedo. I’m not in charge of making moves, I’m in charge of coaching.”

When host Brian Hanley told Cooper that he wasn’t trying to put him on the spot, Cooper hung up.”

And here we thought Ozzie Guillen was the only White Sox’s coach with a temper …

9.3 Million Watch ABC’s ’20/20′ Interview With Charlie Sheen

An estimated 9.3 million people watched the ABC News “20/20″ special last night, featuring an interview with “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen.

The program placed first in its time period in the two key TV demos: adults 25-54 and adults 18-49. The interview placed second in total viewers behind CBS’ “The Good Wife.”

Sheen seemed to be doing everything in his power to undermine what was supposed to be an exclusive with ABC, granting three separate interviews to NBC’s “Today,” as well as to CNN’s Piers Morgan, TMZ.com and Howard Stern.

Sheen said on Monday that the ABC interview, conducted by Andrea Canning, “seemed a little slanted.”

There is one show Sheen won’t be going on however…

‘Piers Morgan Tonight’ Tops ‘Hannity’ in the Demo in Night Two, But Still Sees Drop In Total Viewers

The preliminary ratings for night two of “Piers Morgan Tonight” are in, and it was a mixed bag for CNN.

Not surprisingly, the total viewership was down from its premiere night, drawing 1.273 million total viewers, compared to 2.1 million for the premiere. Premiere episodes and premiere weeks of new shows often see higher viewership totals than where they end up settling.

That said, the program drew 551,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demo, topping both “Hannity” on Fox News and The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC, and improving on its premiere demo numbers by +6%.

Of course, the demo jump can probably be attributed to Morgan’s guest last night, radio shock jock Howard Stern, who has a much younger audience than Oprah Winfrey, who was Morgan’s first guest.

Oddsmakers On ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’

After months of planning and promotion and several weeks of getting his first interviews in the can, Piers Morgan joins CNN’s lineup tonight. His first guest: Oprah Winfrey, recorded in Los Angeles during the semi-annual TCA press tour earlier this month. Tomorrow night, it’s Howard Stern for the hour.

NYT’s Brian Stelter writes about what the show means to CNN:

The weight on Mr. Morgan’s shoulders is substantial. CNN, though profitable for its parent company, Time Warner, has given up more than a third of its viewers in recent years, and “Piers Morgan Tonight” is the biggest effort yet at a turnaround.

Mr. Morgan knows he will be judged on whether he improves CNN’s ratings in the 9 p.m. hour. “If I do, I’m a genius. If I don’t, I’m a half-wit. There is no middle ground,” he said.

Irish oddsmaker Paddy Power has placed odds on Morgan’s “gets” as well as his performance in the 9pm timeslot — the first significant programming change CNN has seen in that hour in 25 years.

“Piers will be under huge scrutiny after replacing a US broadcasting legend,” says Roberto Coladangelo spokesman for Paddy Power. “However with Larry King’s low 2010 audience and Morgan’s extensive launch publicity means we think he will better that on his debut show.”

Paddy Power is offering these odds on Morgan’s first world leader interview:

13/8 George W Bush
2/1 Bill Clinton
5/2 David Cameron
5/1 Jimmy Carter
9/2 Barack Obama
8/1 Vladimir Putin
10/1 Tony Blair
16/1 Gordon Brown
33/1 Silvio Berlusconi

CNN’s Piers Morgan Reveals his First Week of Guests on ‘Piers Tonight’

CNN’s Piers Morgan announced his first week of guests this morning. The show premieres one week from tonight.

We knew his first guest was going to be Oprah Winfrey — scheduled for Monday. Howard Stern — slated for Tuesday — has made his scheduled appearance on the show public by bashing “Piers Tonight” before the show has even started.

Howard Stern Booked For Piers Morgan’s Show, Says No One Will Want to Watch It

Legendary shock jock Howard Stern said on his Sirius/XM radio program this morning that he would be one of the first guests on Piers Morgan‘s upcoming CNN show “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

Presumably CNN was waiting to announce the first guests until closer to the show’s premiere, but embargoes have never stopped Stern before.

Stern also said that he probably wasn’t supposed to talk about the appearance, but in his typically modest fashion explained that he didn’t care because “no one will watch it” anyway.

Fox Report Gets ‘Sterned.’ Shep Calls it ‘Disgusting’

Mine_4.5.jpgA crank caller got on the air tonight on “FOX Report with Shepard Smith.”

Around 7:50pmET as Smith was recapping the story of the West Virgina mine collapse, he went to a phone interview with a man who he thought was a spokesperson. “What have you learned?” asked Smith.

“We have learned that Jamie Foxx is a c–t,” said the caller. Using the “C” word just about no one likes to hear.

“That’s unfortunate,” said Smith. “It’s never happened to us here but it’s always distressing when there are six people killed at a mine disaster and we’re waiting for 21 others to find out whether they are alive or dead and something like that sneaks by our screeners. Disgusting.”

A tipster tells us it may be Captian Janks of Howard Stern fame referring to the feud between Stern and actor Jamie Foxx.
